Special Handmade Wedding Gifts To Surprise Your Guests

wedding party

For many people, their wedding days are looked back on with happy memories that’ll last a lifetime. Your wedding day is one of the most special days you’ll ever experience, and it’s important for yourself, and your guests, to look back at the day with a smile!

To commemorate the important day, you can also give your wedding party a little gift to cherish for the rest of their lives. The question is – what can you give them that’s personalised to you?  

Here, we’ll take a look at five handmade wedding favours you can make for your guests.

Create scented candles 

Everyone loves candles. They light up your home on the coldest of evenings, making you feel cosy and comfortable all year long. So why not spread this joy by gifting your guests a personalised scented candle when they attend your special day? 

Don’t worry, the process is relatively quick and simple. You can make candles by following eight simple steps using a clean jar, some melted wax, a wick, and a fragrance. This little bit of effort will mean the world to your guests. 

The aroma you choose can be personalised to your wedding, including the location you tied the knot. If you’re getting married at a wedding venue in the Lake District, for example, you can choose scents inspired by nature, such as pine needle and sandalwood.

This sentimental gift can be cherished by your loved ones forever. They can also create candles themselves, based on their experiences at your wedding. So, if you print out personalised labels, the memory will stay with them always.


Photo card with the married couple

Photographs are one of the best ways to cherish memories. If you’re hiring a photographer for your wedding, you can organise personal photoshoots with your nearest and dearest. These can be with your sister, for example, alongside your significant other. 

Then you can create a personalised photo card for each of your chosen guests. These can include a professional photo with a handwritten note on it, so they can frame it around their house and remember your day for years to come.


Personalised bags of delicious sweets 

If you’re struggling to think of an idea to suit everyone at your party, you can simply make a bag of delicious treats to make anyone feel peckish. You can’t go wrong with a delicious bag of sweets, after all. These can also be tailored to certain diets, such as vegan and halal.

To make each bag personalised, you can include a little note with a few words of endearment. It doesn’t have to be an over-the-top sonnet to each and every person. A few sentences on the moment you met them would be the perfect finishing touch. 


Homemade seed packets 

You can also prepare homemade seed packets for your loved ones to cherish. These can include a small number of seeds for them to plant and grow in their home garden. This could be Birch Tree seedlings, for example, which represent purification in Celtic mythology

The colour of Birch Trees also makes them the perfect wedding favour. The bark is a striking silver and white shade, which will match the colour palate of your wedding if you choose to go down the traditional route. What could be more symbolic?


Treat your guests with a seasonal favour 

Last but certainly not least, you can make seasonal wedding favours. If you are married in autumn or winter, this can be white crochet pumpkins or delicate wreaths of holly. For the spring and summer, you can make necklaces from seashells or little bouquets made from preserved flowers. 

Your gifts don’t need to cost a lot of money or take up a lot of time to create, the thought that counts is the main thing. Your guests will be reminded of your happy day with special memories no matter what you gift them!
